UPDATE: Seems like this is misinformation and Bungie is going to post an official statement today...whew!

If the article holds true, to make your exotic inline with the new expansion you need two exotic shards, 7000 glimmer and all the XP to completely rerank each exotic weapon you have.

If this is true, screw you bungie...you suck.

This is true since the patch on Monday...exotics exclude raid gear though.

Looks like this article is misinformation and Bungie is going to post an official blog update later today. His comment is below:

Here is the official patch notes sentence you are looking for, and it is legit:

General


In preparation for the Dark Below, Exotic Armor and Weapons no longer require Ascendant Materials to upgrade

UPDATE 2: It's official: You have to relevel each exotic and it will be two exotic shards (one to get the upgraded weapon and one to finish it), 7000 glimmer and a crap ton of XP in order to get it fully ranked for the new expansion. Screw you Bungie...you royally suck.

It might save you a week of shard grinding...

Shard grinding just got replaced with exotic shard hunting, strange coin grinding and glimmer grinding. Sounds so fun. :frusty:

"Glimmer grinding" = use glimmer bonus consumable before story or strike mission.
